Founded in 2001, Ossa Mondo holds true to the tradition of Japanese tailoring and fashion as an art form. The Ossa Mondo names consists of “OSSA”, which stands for “Optional Scope of Splendid Association”, and “Mondo”, which is derived from the Portuguese word meaning world. Instead of a narrow focus, Ossa Mondo is concerned with widening their scope and taking inspiration from diverse worldwide sources. This philosophy results in the latest collection — a mixed bag of unexpectedness. At times, the collection tends to get busy. The range includes everything from simple tees featuring color blocks to tees that are overembellished with studs and other elements. However, cut and proportion are on point when it comes to the collection’s cropped jacket and sheer number. In the midst of all this, it is the solid safe pieces that stand out and ground the collection.
